     There’s not a lot that’s more popular than a burlap wreath right now… they’re inexpensive, easy, and incredibly versatile since they can be reused for any season or holiday.  I was looking online for tutorials and couldn’t find any that I loved (too much talking, not enough pictures showing the steps), so I decided to make my own wreath and take pictures of every step so that there’s no guesswork for you!  So brace yourself, it’s gonna get pic heavy up in here!  Now, the following tutorial is on how to make my exact wreath, however you can customize it however you’d like.

Materials: 

  • Wire wreath frame ($2.99 at Hobby Lobby)
  • Burlap (15 yards worth, I like a poofy wreath!)
  • Silk flowers
  • Red raffia
  • Florists wire
  • Heavy duty scissors

Directions:

  • Begin by wrapping a 6 inch piece of wire around the end of your burlap (see pic)

  • Wrap wire around frame.  Make small loop with burlap and thread it through the innermost circle (see pic)

  • Begin threading loops of burlap up the wire frame, from the innermost to the outermost circles making each loop even with one another (see pic)

  • Continue this around the whole wreath, twisting the loops in different directions so that it’s not overly uniform looking.  It’s suppose to look random and poofy, not structured rows.

  • Occasionally anchor the burlap to the frame with a small piece of florists wire and snip off the excess wire.  This will keep your burlap from moving.

  • Pull tops of silk flowers off of stems and tread 8 inch pieces of florists wire through them.  Twist to secure wire to flower.

  • Fasten flowers onto wreath frame and snip excess wire.  Hide any visible wire with burlap and flowers.
